Located in a leafy smart area very close to Birmingham City Centre and easily accessible by buses located outside Woodbrooke itself - I found the staff helpful, the room quiet and acceptable and the building itself very interesting especially the large room where Mahatma Gandhi spoke in 1931. Breakfast was very good! I even found a tv room in another... More

Great room - small but everything you need; parking on-site; fantastic food - especially the vegetarian options; coffee, 'papers and soft chairs available and the most wonderful, varied , gardens to wander through. It's peaceful, but you don't completely lose the outside world unless you choose to (ie. choose to watch no TV, stay on-site). My four-night stay, full-board, provided... More

Woodbrooke is a Quaker study center where you can stay for varying lengths of time. If you stay only one night, you will probably want to come back and stay longer. The food is delicious. The rooms are comfortable and very clean. The grounds are beautifully kept. You can walk into the walled garden and imagine yourself back in the... More
